Can we talk about Jeniffer Lawrence? Can somebody PLEASE talk with me about Jennifer Lawrence?! How does she do this?! I can’t even display this much emotion in REAL LIFE.
Fuck, I am so glad I am around to see her create this shit. She is incredible.
here, have another oscar
I was thinking when I was watching catching fire that its so nice to watch an actress pull all the stops on her emotional range and be willing to look ugly/weird with her face to do it. I’m so used to actresses being kept pretty no matter what when in reality nfucking no one looks beautiful in these emotional moments
ALL HAIL THE QUEEN

i hate when men complain about women’s body hair, even like the fine hair on their backs. go fuck a shark if you wanna have sex with something hairless
AM I SUPPOSED TO HATE MY BODY?
You, my good lady, made me cry with the ending. I have never seen something as rational and yet, personal, as this. It really made me think, pause, and analyze my own self-loathing and you’re so right. I’m wasting my precious time and I’ve damaged myself.Why doesn’t this have more views? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about different things pertaining to myself, and one minute I’m okay with me and the next, I hate certain or all aspects of myself. In the shower this morning, I was thinking about my flabby arms and thunder thighs and I was like “Well, at least my stomach is kinda thin.” Then I thought, why do we have to pick bits and pieces of ourselves that we like in order to feel better about ourselves? Instead of shaming those certain features, why can’t we just love ourselves as awhole? If we know we’ll never be perfect, then why do we critique ourselves and each other for not being perfect? It makes no sense. And this girl right here in this video is absolutely right. Why hate your body? What’s the point? If you have a problem with your weight, shape, or appearance, then maybe it’s not your body that you need to change, but instead, you need to change your way of thought/your self-concept. You are beautiful/handsome just the way you are. If you’re gonna change, change because you want to better yourself, not because of society’s crappy concept of beauty. You don’t need to starve yourself or workout, you just need to be happy. That’s all that matters.
I will reblog this every time it comes up on my dash. Annie is such a HUGE, incredible inspiration to me— not to mention a fucking goddess <3
Ahhhh, you are the sweetest human being!!
While a gay man might casually mention his husband, or a lesbian might out herself by talking about her girlfriend, bisexuals are often wrongly assumed to be straight or gay depending on who they are with. Spelling out that they are bisexual can be misconstrued as rejecting a current partner or declaring themselves up for anything.
Faith Cheltenham, president of the national bisexual organization BiNet USA, was often presumed to be lesbian when she dated women. When she met the man who would become her husband, she worried people would assume she was straight, invalidating the work she did to come out.
But when she tries to correct that assumption, some mistake it as a sexual invitation. They say, “Why would you tell me you’re bi when your husband is right there?” Cheltenham said.
